VINNY COGNATO, enjoys playing his drums, especially as the drummer of recording artists, THE MYSTICS. VINNY loves all Doo-Wop music, especially all MYSTICS’ songs, and loves playing MYSTICS’ shows. “Everyone is so great, it’s a pleasure performing with such talented and wonderful guys”. “We are family”.
At the age of 16, growing up in Canarsie Brooklyn, New York City, VINNY’s parents paid for private drum lessons. His teacher, JOEL ROTHMAN, is the author of many drum books, and one of the very finest professional drummers in the country. “I was extremely lucky to be taken under his wing, and trained by, JOEL ROTHMAN. Not many people are so lucky”.
At 18, VINNY joined recording artists, “Vito and the Salutations”. It was at a New York City Rock and Roll show VINNY decided he realized his dream of living like, “The Beatles”. His dream became a reality when screaming girls were asking for his autograph. “The bug bit me at that point.”
After ten years playing with “Vito and the Salutations”, VINNY joined another named act, “The Impalas”. When they decided to split up, he was contacted by Vito Picone of “The Elegants”. VINNY performed with “The Elegants” for eleven years before moving to the Villages, Florida, and joining THE MYSTICS.
“I have been blessed and lucky to have had a fulfilling musical career. I anticipate many years ahead playing my drums with, THE MYSTICS.”
